What really baffles me is that all this came from someone quoting a rule that doesn't exist.

I accept blame, many of these pages are from me arguing about it.

No.

I love how this is all credited to Gal and Sak_N. When Aramoro and I said this on page 1. lol
Sorry, with all the back and forth it's easy to forget that somethings are already covered. Much overdue Kudos to you too!

So if im reading it right, if i model a un-marked CSM lord with Daemon weapon in the shape of say a mace would that mean the CSM lord would strike at s7 ap 4? as the Daemon weapon gives +1 strength and a mace gives plus +2, thats right isn't it?

Oooooh boy. And the FAQ says.....nothing specifically about Daemon Weapons. HOWEVER it does classify Typhus' weapon as a Daemon Weapon AND a Force Axe.

So could this be possible? I'm not really sure, as Typhus has a unique weapon to start with, and it doesn't mention Daemon Weapons stacking with the Power Weapon rules....

That in mind I'd consider it this way: Daemon Weapons have a specific set of rules that aren't covered in the Main Rulebook or are shared with other codex books. As such I would classify them as Unusual Power Weapons until GW puts out more specific guidance on them.

I did mention that it as already brought up and dismissed in this thread and in others

I think there must be at least two or three more threads besides this where BA players are begging for someone to tell them Dante didn't just get fucked.

As for Daemon Weapons...they have unique rules, I;d call them unusual unless specifically cited as otherwise. The FAQ gives typhus an axe, but that pretty much oinly means typhus has an axe. His weapon was so many different things at once as it is. Unless it says otherwise just go by the RAW for now and see if they clarify it in the next codex

I wouldn't be surprised. No one likes a nerf, but with the way the new edition works it makes perfect sense. And honestly, who takes Dante for anything other than the nipplewing anyways? It's not like those guys got softer, infact thanks to the changes in power weapons they got even better!

Indeed, and THEY will certainly all be carrying axes since they';ll survive long enough to use them.

But it just seems like such a waste for Dante. Having one of the fastest ICs in the imperium was soo cool...now he and Kharn can hug it out on I1

Kharne can share his pictures of kittens with Dante until it's time to throw down!
